As U.S. rockers MASS begin work on their long awaited new studio album, frontman Louis St. August will be providing exclusive updates - text and audiio - from the process. Here's entry number 2!

November 16th, 2017
 
So, we finally have all the drum and bass tracks down for the remaining 10 tracks. This brings the forthcoming MASS album song total to 11. Nine of which were written in the 2016-17 period and the other two are older revised tunes that we felt would be a great fit and deserve to see the light of day. The album will be called "When 2 Worlds Collide."
 
Joey kicked off his drum session with possibly the album opener "Just Can't Deny," an up tempo rocker that just oozes with that great 80s feel. He did a tremendous job on tracking his drum parts with killer rocking beats & drum fills while keeping the tempo locked down. Joey finished up on Sunday afternoon with the killer track "Alive."
 
Michael's bass playing is astonishing as ever as he adds his power and aggressiveness along with his magical melodic feel to the new album. Gene will now start his rhythm and lead tracks the week of November 13th to the 17th. I will submit another blog when guitar tracks are complete and vocal tracks have begun and list the rest of the song titles.
 
On another note: Recently I received a message from a fan that reminded me of several others the band has received over the years, simply just thanking us for staying true to our roots and not being persuaded by label reps (past & future) or to be influenced by current music trends. So while I was sitting back and listening to all the playbacks, I believe we have stayed true and will be releasing another one from the heart.
